There’s no denying how good-looking this Chevy is.
In the late 1950s GM really stepped up its game as European automakers began to tread on their turf in the United States. Out of that effort came some of the most iconic designs from the auto giant, including this 1958 Chevy Impala Convertible. Long and dramatic, this is a car you drive to be noticed and admired, especially today. There’s little doubt you’ll cause a stir while cruising down Main Street or anywhere else. If you act quickly enough, there’s a shot you can scoop this from Corvette Mike Midwest, which is handling the sale, putting this beautiful American classic in your garage.
While everyone has an opinion, you can see why Onyx Black is one of the most popular paint options for the ’58 Impala. It looks so sophisticated with the bright chrome shining on the beltlines, rocker panels, windshield frame, bumpers, and more. This car has the dual antennas on the rear fenders, plus that iconic big V on the trunk lid, indicating there’s a beefy V8 at the other end. Three rocket-style taillights on each side of the rear top off that iconic design.
Speaking of under the hood, there’s a rare 283ci fuel-injected V8, making this car even more special. It works with a two-speed Powerglide transmission for an ultra-smooth driving experience. Both the engine block and valve covers have been painted Red, contrasting vibrantly with the black engine compartment.
Then there’s the beautiful three-tone interior. A black powered convertible top can cover it up, or you can leave it lowered to show off the Black seats with Gray, Turquoise, and Cream inserts. Original instruments and gauges are in place, including the AM Wonder Bar radio.
In 1958 the Impala was the top trim level for the Chevrolet Bel Air, adding more luxuries and styling flairs to the lineup, including a unique roofline. It was available both as a Sports Coupe and Convertible. Because of the success of the Impala, it eventually became its own model line, far outliving the Bel Air.
The seller says only 2,660 miles have been put on this Chevy Impala since it went through a frame-off restoration. From the looks of the car that’s certainly believable.
